Black with a red tint and a thin, white, frothy, disappearing head. Smells of dark dirty barley, feat, caramel extract, and dark malt. Medium thin body. Tastes of flat coke, with barley, caramel, malt extract and dirt. Very processed and blah. Itís not good

Pours black with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malts. Taste is really lacking. Expecting some big roasted flavours, finding none.

A- Metal, roasty, coffee.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Licorice, roasted cereal, spiced.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish.
O- Tastes like a Guinness Draught but with an obvious lager feel. Definitely does not look as great as a Guinness but itís not a bad beer.

Nice toasty aroma. Was hoping more from the body though. Pretty weak with mostly metallic notes. Lager body is fine but thereís just not much flavor

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tastes like Coke with a slight coffee aftertaste. Iím not sure if I drank a beer or a soda. If an alcoholic Coca-Cola was the goal, then they did a great job.

Poured black into a pint glass with a little head but unlike the stout. Almost a burnt barley flavor. Seemed a little thin. Would have this if nothing better is around but thatís about it.

330 ml bottle purchase at the Hawkesbury LCBO on Decembre 12, 2013. Very dark burgundy, thin head. Aroma of roasted grain, a little coffee. Taste of light grains, dry and, sweet notes of sour fruit, aftertaste of dry coffee. Well it is its weaker cousin and that is not saying much!
